Église Saint-Étienne

The church of Saint-Etienne is the main Catholic church in the city of Mulhouse, Haut-Rhin. Like its neighbor, St. Stephen's Reformed Church, the building is distinguished by its size, worthy of a cathedral. The Catholic faith is restored in Mulhouse, Protestant town, in 1803. The number of believers continues to grow, it was decided to build a church that can accommodate this growing population. After several proposals, it is ultimately the project of the Upper Rhine architect Jean-Baptiste Schacre, which is retained on the recommendation of Eugene Viollet-le-Duc. The new building of the Gothic Revival style include a bell tower, a nave with aisles, a transept, a choir surrounded by an ambulatory and radiating chapels. The first stone was blessed in 1855. The consecration of the church was celebrated in 1860 by Bishop Andrew Raess, bishop of Strasbourg.
